Video & Photo Story: Bikepacking the Southern Chilcotin Mountains
Ok, I was annoyed when I wrote this and figured I should explain why this is a problem. Terra Nullius was a legal concept that essentially means "No Mans Land", it was also the precedent by which colonizers legitimated stealing Indigenous lands across the Americas. It's literally a term that is used to erase Indigenous histories and peoples, and is inappropriate to ever use to refer to Indigenous lands. The Chilcotins are literally named for the Indigenous Tsilhqot’in people who live there. As a more specific story of why this utterly inappropriate in the Chilcotin: in 1864 a small war broke out between the Tsilhqot’in and settler-colonists. Subsequently five Tsilhqot’in chiefs were invited to a meeting under false pretenses only to be arrested and hanged by a settler-colonial judge. The hangings effectively rested on the concept of Terra Nullius, as such a concept was needed in order to disregard the validity of their claims to be waging war to protect their lands, and instead render them as criminals to be hanged. The Canadian government only apologized for these events, and acknowledged that the Tsilhqot’in were waging a war, in 2018.

"Bikepacking into No Mans land"? Are you seriously invoking terra nullius in Canada in 2020? Where exactly do you think the name "Chilcotins" comes from?

@browner: If you're going to have a Group B in DH it should really involve highly experimental, stupid fast, and likely dangerous bikes rather than low end gear!

Welcome to the 2020 Pinkbike Field Test - Cross-Country Bike Edition
@brianpark: I spotted that. And Sarah M getting that time during testing by the looks of it? More importantly, it looks like Sarah M got the QOM on the more hotly contested CrumpFlow segment. I guess those XC bikes are pretty quick!

Welcome to the 2020 Pinkbike Field Test - Cross-Country Bike Edition
As far as I can tell, this segment maps to the route they used. https://www.strava.com/segments/23735352?filter=overall So 15 minutes is very fast (KOM speed in Squamish is serious business).

Photo Story: Sven Martin's Favourite Shots of Martin Maes
The US and Canada have very different attitudes to alcohol than most of Europe (that I'm guessing are a legacy of prohibition). Even if Maes was under the legal age to buy alcohol, it would probably be considered absolutely fine for him to have a glass of wine or a beer as long as he didn't buy it or drink it in a bar.

RockShox Shock Pump

$20 CAD
RockShox analogue shock pump. It's a few years old now, but still works more than well enough to get forks and shocks accurate within ~5psi. I just upgraded to digital, but was using this regularly before that.

Brand new bottle of RockShox 0w-30 fork oil. Unopened, still with price label of $49.95 on the bottle. Has been sitting on my shelf for about 3 weeks max. I bought it, and before I needed to use it sold my bike with RockShox and bought one that is all Fox.

Deity Knuckleduster Black (one ride only)

$10 CAD
These are essentially brand new. They came with my new bike, but after one short ride I decided to go back to glue on grips. They've been ridden for less and one hour, and still look as good as new.
